New Self Reinforced Polymer Composites Explained

13 December 2011

The European Esprit project is holding a free event to disseminate the findings of the project, open to all to attend.

The Esprit project has the theme of the development of Self Reinforced Polymer composites (SRP’s) which are an all-thermoplastic composite based on the principle of having a reinforcement and matrix of the same basic polymer family which offers the advantages of being lighter in weight for equivalent stiffness, having improved recyclability and much improved impact resistance. There are many applications where SRP’s can potentially replace standard unreinforced polymers or glass-reinforced thermoplastic composites.

The event is being held on Wednesday 18th January 2012, 13:00 –17:00 at Celstran GmbH, Kaiserslautern, Germany.

Esprit is an SME targeted collaborative project part-funded by the European Commission. It has 12 partners from 8 European countries and a total budget of nearly 6 million Euros. The project has a duration of 3.5 years, the end date being March 2012.
